HUMOR ALERT: President Obama is giving the first State of the Union Address tonight for his second term in office. If you haven't heard, there's been a lot of tension in the United States over the past year. Tonight, there were some surprises originally planned, but the President decided to take them out of the speech. You might be shocked what parts the left-hugging media left on the cutting room floor!
This article is by request from several of my readers. After one of the most hate-filled and polarized elections in recent US History (yes, believe it or not, it wasn’t the worst - see the 1876 election of Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden for more division...), the whiners have come out in full force. Who was the worst of this election? Who would you say couldn't handle the reality that they didn't get their way? A lot of posts have been popping up about businesses to boycott because they are laying off their employees. I say, let bygones by bygones. Those companies are going to do what they want until they realize that the sky hasn't fallen and that they need qualified people to work for them. Hopefully, by that time, it won't be too late and more savvy businessman haven't hired them away. Note: You will not find Mitt Romney on this list. Despite not having a concession speech written, he accepted his loss with grace and dignity in post-election 2012. Well, done, Mr. Romney! Here's my list of five people who need to control their childish temper tantrums and quit whining:
You read that right. President Obama is my favorite conservative - at least in the 21st century. I know Fox News and the Tea Party keep telling you that he's a Marxist and a Socialist...and Communist...but that is all rhetoric. President Obama is actually a moderate Republican who just happens to be the leader of the Democratic Party. Don't believe me? Did Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck tell you something different? Believe it or not, just because you consider yourself a Republican or fiscal conservative, you don't have to despair. In fact, you're in luck! The country just elected a moderate Conservative just like ol' Ronald Reagan used to be! Let's look at some of the clues to our President's secret leanings to the Right...
On June 28th, 2012 the Supreme Court of the United States deemed that the Affordable Health Care Act was constitutional. It was a shock to Republicans and a win for the President. Do you agree with the decision? Are you against it? Either way, what are your reasons? While President Obama will go down in history as the President that passed this legislation, did you know that other presidents have tried before him? Some of them even got pretty close to succeeding in the health care controversy. Here is a list of previous presidents (2 Republicans and 3 Democrats) who worked at getting Health Care in America:

A lot of lies appear in the news these days to push a political agenda. What gets Americans going is when people state "That's what the Founding Father's intended..." Most of this is completely false. It's hard to imagine what they actually wanted or intended, but if you connect the dots, you can see how they felt about certain things. We can gather this from the writings they left behind (you know...stuff like The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, The Federalist Papers, etc...) and their personal journals. A lot of people may be upset about the revelation that some of these Facts About The Founding Fathers that are blatantly false, but you can't rewrite history - even if you want to... Read more...
